Twitter is officially announcing threads as a feature for all Twitter users. Until now, the feature had been in beta, available for Android users who have signed up for latest beta releases. In the coming days, all Android and iOS users will be able to tweetstorm natively using the Android or iOS app.
The new threading feature on Twitter for Android and iOS will be available as a “Add another tweet” button which will be shown right below the threads you create. You will also see a new “plus” button at the bottom right when you are composing tweets to add successive tweets.
Twitter has also confirmed that this feature will be available for users on Twitter.com too. There is no concrete date on the availability though.
It was only a few weeks back when Twitter announced the launch of 280 characters for all users, which essentially replaces the previous default of 140 characters.
Sasank Reddy, product manager at Twitter says, “At Twitter, we have a history of studying how people use our service and then creating features to make what they’re doing easier.” – Official blog.
The update is being rolled out across Google Play Store and App Store as we speak. This should be available for all users in the coming days. Make sure to download the latest version of the app to use this feature.
